Pay tribute to the Commonwealth’s service personnel this Commonwealth Day

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is marking Commonwealth Day with the launch of a new way for the public honour to the men and women of the Commonwealth who gave their lives in the World Wars.

The CWGC tribute allows visitors to lay a personalised, environmentally friendly message to someone they’re remembering at their grave or memorial.

It is 100% biodegradable and compostable and its design reflects the six Commonwealth member nations who fund our work.

Tributes can be purchased online and all profits from their sale will be donated to the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation, the charity arm which funds education and outreach programmes to engage the public in the work of the CWGC and keep alive the stories of the men and women it commemorates.

To purchase a tribute online, visit: www.cwgc.org/online-shop

When travel resumes, visitors to Western Europe will be able to purchase a tribute while touring the former battlefields, from the CWGC Experience in Beaurains, France and in the CWGC Ieper Information Centre, next to the Menin Gate.
